Create a Full Length Mirror from an Old Door

Create a Full Length Mirror from an Old Door

For a long time I’ve wanted a full length mirror in my bedroom. But I didn’t want just any old mirror … I wanted something different. I looked for something vintage and special at every flea market and in every antique store. Nothing! Then it dawned on me that I had a fabulous old barn door taking up space and all it needed was a mirror to go on it!

Full Length Mirror made from Barn DoorLady Luck was in my corner because once the solution dawned on me, I immediately found the perfect mirror to add to the door.


Old Barn DoorHere’s what the door used to look like. At one time it was part of my friend’s coffee table.

I deconstructed it to use it as an architectural element … but it was looking a little dated.
